List category posts
Custom field and/or tag display (2 posts)

    I'm developing a website for a church, and we need a listing of all posts in a category by year. This plugin has worked really well so far, but I need more one feature - the ability to add the Scripture reference to the post. My two options appear to be:

    *Custom field - however, the plugin requires that I use the custom field value, too
    *Tag - however, the plugin filters by tag name; not what I want

    Here's what it looks like now (a sample listing)

    FROM RISE TO FALL - December 14, 2008
    Theme: This passage describes the doctrinal faithfulness that must characterize an overseer of God's household.

    Here's what I'd like to see:

    FROM RISE TO FALL - December 14, 2008
    Theme: This passage describes the doctrinal faithfulness that must characterize an overseer of God's household.
    Scripture: Matthew 24:32-51

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi silentlucidity,
    From what you describe, I understand you can use custom fields for this. Since version 0.15 (or 0.16), the plugin can show custom fields and it values.

    So for what you need, you would create the "Scripture" custom field, and add the value to each post. Then you would use something like:
    [catlist id=4 customfield_display=Scripture]

    The custom field value you are referring to, is to filter the posts by custom field.

    Hope this helps. Regards!
